Sailing the east coast of Australia between from Sep. to Dec.

Hi there, I am soon going to Australia for several months, starting mid-August until the beginning of January. I'll be based in Gold Coast, Queensland, but I expect to travel a lot. I would very much like to sail in this area during this time (New Zealand is also an option).
I did RYA Competent Crew and Day Skipper several months ago, so I have rudimentary sailing experience. I'd like to learn and practice more, including keeping watch during non-stop passages, if possible.
If anyone is interested, or knows someone in the area who might be interested, I'd be grateful if you contacted me.

Cheers!

May have some trips later this year anywhere from Mackay to Melbourne.
I will let you know once we decide what our plans are.
We do go non stop for days with day nd night watches.

Re: Sailing the east coast of Australia between from Sep. to Dec.

Hi There,
I have a 40 feet sailing Catamaran. Fremantle is my home, and I am looking for crew to go go back there.
I will be in Cairns in about 3\4 days, in you are interested in joining for any part of the trip.

Hi Ercat, it sounds great, but I'm leaving Cairns this Thursday towards Gold Coast. I assume you are sailing north of the continent, right? In that case, I don't think I could join...

Hi Jaront,
yes I am going North, thanks for your replay.
I may also have found a crew with friends.
Good travelling

Hi there. I have received a message that probably was not for me. I will not be able to help anyway.
Regards
